"Looks like a PS2 game" occurs on 17% of all image-heavy gaming news posts

The delightfully outspoken Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek, apparently believes visuals are by far the most important aspect of a game.
“People say that graphics don’t matter, but play Crysis and tell me they don’t matter. It’s always been about graphics driving gameplay,” he told X360 Magazine.
“Graphics, whether it’s lighting or shadows, puts you in a different emotional context and drives the immersion, and immersion is effectively the number one thing we can use to help you buy into the world.
“The better the graphics, the better the physics, the better the sound design, the better the technical assets and production values paired with the art direction, making things look spectacular and stylistic is 60% of the game.”
Hey, Caevat? Minecraft’s on the phone with a few objections. In all seriousness, our review of Crysis 3 praised both its visuals and its gameplay, although other critics haven’t been as kind, something Yerli finds frustrating as he feels it’s the best one in the series.
